lyrics

the birds, sky and trees don't care where the lines fall like rain doesn't care where it ends up at all
the songs from our past and the stories collect dust while our language twists, bends, and forgets
it will all look the same in the end
despite what we're taught to pretend
--
there will come a time when all that's left is a hint of a name
--
a sea serpent hugging faint lines some hand drew, writing an narrative of what's it's been through
to make up a story about nations past, as if they were perfect forever steadfast
we could all go back to some time
when everything was perfectly aligned
---
there will come a time when all that's left is a hint of a name
and a few crumpled maps marking borders where nobody's been (that no one can name)
